“Consistently Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

I've visited the Molina Lario a number of times over the years and hope to keep coming back. The hotel is beautifully furnished and extremley comfortable. This year we spent more time by the pool and rooftop bar, the views from which are stunning. It was a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon in Malaga during the busy Easter weekend.
I honestly can't think of a negative thing to say about this hotel.

I suggested a weekend in Malaga to girlfriends as I thought it would be ideal for us having paid a quick visit with relatives who are Spanish residents last year. This hotel was just perfect for our needs being in a location which I do not believe can be bettered. Our rooms were beautifully clean and offered everything we needed. Comfy beds, black out blinds and so quiet which I especially requested. The roof top pool is quite small but there are a couple of levels and the loungers are very comfortable. Pool perfect for a quick plunge and then of course there are the views over to the cathedral and down to the harbour in the distance.
We didn't breakfast in the hotel as we were just around the corner from a number of restaurants offering a range of options at a reasonable price.
The weather was very hot whilst we were there and we paid Eur33 to keep the rooms on until 3pm to shower etc and the hotel looked after our baggage until we were ready to leave.
Malaga is a fantastic place for a few days. Courteous service in bars and restaurants at reasonable prices, a great atmosphere, plenty for art and culture buffs and a hop from the airport.
Apologies if we were a bit excitable around the pool- we don't get out much!!

Room Tip: We asked for quiet rooms which look down over the breakfast area so no real view but main priority w...

The Molina Lario hotel is an ideal hotel while exploring Malaga. It is in the heart of the central city, within walking distance to the Castillo, Alcazaba, Cathedral, Roman Theater and Picasso Museum. It is fairly priced, clean with a wonderful roof-top pool and sitting area. In addition, I carelessly left a belonging at the hotel and the staff was most helpful I working with me to get it returned. I couldn't have asked for better customer service. Upon my next visit to Malaga, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again at the Molina Lario.

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night break in Malaga. I booked this hotel after much research into hotels in different countries as I was not sure where to take her for her birthday and after quite a bit of reading up I chose the Molina Lario hotel and I am pleased to say both my wife and I were very pleased with the hotel. The location of the hotel is great you come out of the door and turn one way and within minutes you are in the town( the cathedral is right beside the hotel) and if you turn the other way again within minutes you are by the harbour. The hotel is modern and very clean and the staff here were very helpful and pleasant.we were given a free upgrade to a double deluxe room on our arrival which was a very nice surprise and thank you for that, the room was great a nice large double bed plenty a good size room, the shower was excellent with plenty of toiletries to use all in all I would say this hotel is well worth the four stars it is given. We went up to the roof top terrace which looked nice the pool is there not a large pool but more than enough to keep cool in the hot sunny days. We did not eat in the hotel so I cannot say anything about that. we will return to Malaga which is a lovely city and will go back to the hotel no doubt about that.

Room Tip: Go for the upgrade if possible great size rooms and good beds.

Its located right in the heart of the city, next to the main cathedral in the pedestrian area.
From here you can get everywhere by foot. The airportbus stops on the main street, which is 2min walking from the hotel.
The front desk service orientation and their willingness to help could be improved.
We had without breakfast, but i'd not recomend it. Its 20€ p/P!!!

We had 2 coffees, 4 freshli squeezed orange juices and 2 sandwiches for 15€ in a coffee around the corner from the hotel.

Dear client,

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. We are happy to know that you could enjoy of the privileged Hotel’s location. On the other hand, we would like to apologize for any unappropriated treatment of the service, we will talk directly with the department to avoid any similar situation in the future as the personal service is one of our main core politics and we are always trying to give a unique treatment to each guest. Regarding the breakfast, we set our prices based on service and local area and that our entire breakfast assortment is high quality, with seasonal products and all from the local area. This is the reason why the price might be higher than somewhere else where not the same conditions are given. We hope to have the pleasure of serving you again in the future.

Modern hotel in just the right spot. We were in a superior room. Spacious, light and quiet. The room and bathroom were well appointed. The staff at the Hotel were helpfull. The pool area is a bit small,and the rooftop bar was only open two nights a week.
Overall good value for money and I would certainly recommend this Hotel.

Must be the best located hotel in Malaga.....just minutes away from the cathedral and the historical town centre. Lovely rooftop terraces with views over Malaga.We had requested a quiet room and were lucky our wish was granted. We didn't have a view, being on the second floor but there are the terraces for that .(only slight niggle was that only one of the 3 lifts serves the second floor ).Our room was spotless, spacious and very comfortable. A kettle in the room was a lovely bonus. All the staff we came across were helpful and friendly. Our only slight negative was how poor the internet connection was but other than that all was great. We would certainly stay in this hotel again.
